What brought Samuel and his family to America is unknown but his emigration may be tied to the Hunziker family, a name also associated with Bottenwil. Samuel Graber's uncle (his mothers brother), Hans Jakob Bauman, had married Maria Hunziker in Bottenwil in 1834 and on the ship manifest of the SS Canada in 1883, listed just above the family of Samuel Graber is a Hunziker family. I have not found any record of this particular Hunziker family after their arrival in America however, when Samuel's sister Verena Graber arrived in America 23 years later in 1906 she almost immediately married William Hunziker in Troy. William Hunziker was a widower who had emigrated from Switzerland about 1891 and had previously resided in Pawnee county Nebraska, where a number of Swiss Hunziker families resided. It is speculation that Samuel may have brought his younger sister to Troy as a wife for the widowed William Hunziker.

Samuel Graber, one of eleven children of Michael and Elizabeth (Bauman) Graber, was born in the town of Bottenwil, Canton Aargau, Switzerland in 1853. There he married Anna Bucher in May of 1877 and their first daughter, Rosina, was born the following September followed by Johann, Albert, and Marie by 1882. In 1883 Samuel, Anna, and the four children boarded the "SS Canada" in Havre, France arriving in New York on 8 August, 1883. The family probably removed to Troy shortly after arrival where Samuel filed his Declaration of Intent for citizenship in August of 1884 and where Samuel Gruber [sic] was naturalized on September 29, 1888.

Five months after their arrival in America Troy birth records show the birth of a son John (II) to Samuel and Anna. The birth record indicates that Samuel and Anna had four previous children and three are still living. From this we gather that the youngest, Marie, had probably died shortly after their arrival and we find no further record of her. In December of 1885 their sixth child, Wilhelm, is born. The assertion on the birth record that there are five living children is a further indication that Marie had died.

With the loss of the 1890 census by fire, our first census record of the family is in 1900. At this time we find Samuel and Anna with the only child listed as Albert, John (I) and Rose had married. The census indicates that Anna had bore five children and four are living which would appear to be incorrect. While Marie would be old enough to marry by 1900, John (II) and Wilhelm would be young enough to be living with their parents. With no further record of Marie, John II, or Wilhelm beyond 1885 I believe they had all died by 1900, with Marie probably by 1884. In any case, none of these three are mentioned at the death of Samuel in 1921.

Of the three children who lived to adulthood, John and Albert each had numerous children whose descendants still (2007) live in the vicinity. Rose married William Kelly about 1898 with whom she had a daughter Anna M. In 1910 Rose and daughter Anna are living with Samuel and Anna, whether she is widowed is illegible on the census. By 1920 Rose has remarried to Richard Kittson and has a daughter Irene by him. Her daughter Anna is not listed, however Anna would now be 22 years old and could be married. Rose died in 1921 at the age of 44 (does her obituary show a daughter Anna?).

Samuel and Anna were renters living at various addresses within Troy where Samuel is variously referred to as a laborer or shoemaker. He a Methodist and Anna a Catholic. While they're native language is German, in 1900 they claim to be able to read, write, and speak English. At his death of a stroke at age 67 in March of 1921 he had lived in Troy nearly 40 years, had buried three children and watched the other three marry and start families of their own. The household was further disrupted the following September with the death their daughter Rose (Graber) Kittson. In 1930 Anna's household consists of herself with her son-in-law Richard Kittson and granddaughter Irene. Anna outlived her husband by 20 years and died in 1941 at the age of 86 of heart disease. As a Catholic, she was buried in a different cemetery than her Methodist husband.

Martin, his wife Elizabeth, and their son and daughter-in-law, John and Ellen Broderick left Ireland around 1879 and went to Manchester, England, to earn passage to America. Ellen and John's daughter, Mary (Aunt Mame) was born in England. They moved to Troy and then on to Iowa where second daughter Margaret (Marge) was born. After surviving a tornado, they moved back to Troy. Later in life, Ellen (Phalen) Broderick lived with daughter Anna (Graber) at 2626 5th Avenue, Troy, until her death.

One story passed down is that Ellen Phalen's family in Ireland had more money than the average family. John J. Broderick was her coachman on the family estate. John and Ellen fell in love and emigrated to America. It seems her family may not have approved.

Which may indicate that his service in the NG was continuous. He reenlists in 1915 and is discharged as a Sergeant in June, 1917, by reason of "having relatives depending upon him for support". It is noted that his Character was excellent and his "Service Honest and Faithful". His marksmanship is poor. Charles obituary states that he served for 25 years in the National Guard. He did not serve overseas during WW I. His trade was listed as a cigarmaker.

áááááIrving Messenger was born on 10 February 1856 in Granby, Hartford Co., Conn..1 He was the son of Frank Messenger and Sarah Ann Winchell. He married Bridget Gagan, daughter of Hugh Gagan and Ann (Nancy) McCabe, in 1885 in Utica, Oneida Co., New York.2 He died on 15 December 1899 in Utica, Oneida Co., New York, at age 43 of a hemorhage.3,4 He was buried in Forest Hill cemetery (no stone), Utica, New York.
ááááá
Religion: Buried from Calvary Episcopal Church.5
Occupation: in 1876 Cigarmaker and lived @ 34 Elizabeth St.6
Medical: "he (the coroner) learned that Messenger had been in ill health for several years and had suffered hemorrhages on previous occasions."
Hobbies/Interests: Irving was a member of the Cigarmakes union and worked for Stevens Lockart.

áááááIrving is found in some records as "Willis I." Messenger. He was born in Granby Connecticut, an area his ancestors had settled in the 1600's. He came to Utica New York as a teenager with his mother and grandmother about 1872. What brought them to Utica is unknown. About 1885 he married Bridget Gagan.
áááááBridget was an Irish immigrant, coming to America about 1872, at about 14 years old. She came with two sisters, Ann, who would marry Pat Crosby, and Mary. Apparently the three girls came without their parents or siblings. It is quite possible that they came as indentured servants/maids. Many Irish used this option to pay their passage to America. Bridget worked as a housekeeper in some of the finer homes in the area. Her sister Mary was educated and lived in Philadelphia and came to Utica about 1935. Ann married Pat Crosby and also lived for a while in the Philadelphia or Washington area. All lived to near 90, and when the last of the three, Mary, died in 1948, her obituary claimed two sisters and a brother were still alive in Ireland. Bridget, a Catholic, was of an English speaking part of Ireland. Granddaughter Catherine (Lange) Bankert recalls that Bridget talked of going to Dublin with her brother to sell wares. Where they were from in Ireland is not yet known, however, it would seem reasonable that researchers might concentrate near to the Dublin area (some of the family was still alive in 1948).
Irving and Bridget's first child was Mary, born in 1886. Mary was followed by Clarence, Mabel, Marguerite, and in 1895, Loretta, the last of their five children. Living with the young family were Irving's mother Sarah (Winchell) Messenger, and grandmother, Wealthy (Gillett) Winchell.
áááááOn Friday evening, December 16, 1899, while Irving was returning from work as a cigarmaker at Stevens Lockart, he became sick and went into Howarth and Ballard's drug store on Genesee street seeking assistance. Irving soon fell to the floor and was hemorrhaging. He died quickly, before a doctor could be summoned. Services were held at Calvary Episcopal Church and 43 year old Irving was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery. Members of the Cigarmakers Union acted as pall bearers.
áááááThe family had always struggled and Irving's death had to bring new hardships. Not only were the five children all young, but the in-laws, Sarah in her sixties, and Wealthy in her eighties, were no longer young enough to be able to help the finances of the family.
áááááThese were tough times for many families. Bridget and her young family did not thrive but they did survive. Clarence was a veteran of World War I and had survived mustard gas in the trenches of France. His niece, Catherine Bankert, was an RN and had the opportunity to care for him in his later years. She says that the mustard gas had left his legs with much scarring. While Clarence never married, All four daughters married and had children. Bridget herself outlived her husband by 48 years, dying in 1947 in the vicinity of 90 years of age.

Military Service: between 1862 and 1865 Civil War, Co B. 122 NY Volunteer Regiment. Enlisted as a Sergeant, reduced to private on Dec 31 1863.

áááááOn August 1, 1862, Charles Lange., was mustered in at the rank of sergeqant in Co B, 122'nd regiment of the NYS volunteers in Syracuse, NY at the age of 23. The 122'nd took part in some of the bloodiest battles of the war, including, Antietem, South Mt., Fredricksburgh, Shanendoah Valley, Harpers Ferry, Cedar Creek, The Wilderness, Spottsylvania, and others.
áááááThe 122'nd also took part in Gettysburgh, however Charles had been recorded as a deserter on the march from Fredericksburgh to Gettysburgh. Ten months later he is back on the rolls and it is noted that he was at a hospital in Washington D. C. On December 31, 1863, Charles rank is reduced from sergeant to private. Whether this is related to his missing status is as yet unknown. It may be that dysentery was the cause of his illness as his pension is issued for the disability he acquired at Fredericksburgh…chronic diarrhea causing bleeding piles! Charles was very active in GAR activities after the war.
áááááAs summer wanes into September, 1874. Charles and his wife Catherine are dealing with the colds and sniffles of four daughters, Fanny, Henrietta, Bertha, and Elizabeth. On the 14'th of September six year old Fanny dies of Scarlet fever, she is followed two days later by two year old Bertha, and again on the 17'th by the infant, Elizabeth. On September 18, 1874, Catherine and Charles bury three of their four children in Forest Hills Cemetery leaving four year old Henrietta as the only surviving child. Charles and Catherine would bury 7 of their 13 children.
áááááAlthough Charles only lived 3 1/2 years after the death of his wife Catherine, single life apparently did not appeal to him. He married two more times in those 3 1/2 years, and buried his second wife. At his death, Catherine (deceased) and their children are mentioned as his family. There was no mention of his other marriages or wives.

1380 men served, 179 died in service (more than 1 out of 8)

áááááThe death certificate of Catherine (Wolfe) Lange lists her father as Henry Wolfe, born in the U.S.. If Henry was born in America it is possible that Catherine descends from early Dutch American immigrants. Although I have yet to verify the parents of Catherine, it is likely that she was a child of one of two Henry Wolfes in the West Turin area of NY, a neighboring community of the listed birth place of Catherine of West Leyden. Census records list both of these Henry Wolfes as born in Germany.

áááááOur German ancestors were much more accurate in recording dates than our Irish ancestors, who tended to be less literate. However, I do have an inconsistency with the brothers John, Anton, and Frank. John, Anton and Frank arrived in America in 1880 on the ship Vandalia with their parents. On the ship departure and arrival lists the ages of the children are give as John 18, Anton 12, and Frank 9. As they reached adulthood each seemed to gain 3-4 years in their age. A possibility is that they were anxious for citizenship. Anton applied for naturalization in 1885 and became a citizen in 1886. If the age on shipping records is correct, he would have applied for citizenship at the age of 17, however, he gave his birth year as 1861 (age 20), the required age for citizenship was 21. Another possibility is that there may have been a reason to represent the children as younger than they actually were in Germany. So what I have is a series of birth years for Anton; c. 1868 (shipping list) , 1861 (naturalization), 1864 (1900 census), and 1864 (obituary).
áááááAnton followed his fathers trade as a tailor and retired in 1924 from H. H. Cooper Co. He resided at 1108 Orchard St. in West Utica for most of his adult life. At some point after the death of his wife in 1939, he moved to 23 Parkside Court where he died in 1944 at the age of 80. In 1900, Anton could read and speak English, he could not write in English. Utica born Helen could read, write and speak English. My uncle, Paul Carey, remembers Anton as being of a serious disposition and an accomplished opponent at the game of pinochle.
